“Amazing Pizza”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

LOVE the pizza! Nice Italian style pizza, just more toppings than the originals :)! Always friendly staff and the food is always good. More than you would expect driving past it, worth going in and trying a great pizza!

“Great casual dining for groups”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

7 of us went for a work function – excellent service, and delicious pizzas. We had pizzas to share, and they were well crafted and all were distinctive. Staff were so friendly and relaxed. A great night. Parking is easy (right out the front) and BYO is a bonus, but their cocktails looked very tempting!

“Woodfired Pizza!”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

If you want good woodfired pizza, AJO's is the place to go (especially because they are also in the Entertainment Book!).

“Few saving graces”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

This is a suburban cafe charging restaurant prices - and failing to deliver. In hindsight we should have left when one of the wines was served in a glass that still had lipstick smudges on it. They replaced the wine but left the first glass on the table "so that you can drink it out of the other side, or pour it into the new glass" - ah, no thanks. So the second glass stood sentry over the meal which was two salmon mains, and a steak. The salmons appeared to be OK but the veggies were over-flavoured and the (extra cost) potatoes overcooked. The steak was served medium with onions, but it had been ordered medium-rare with mushrooms. When this was pointed out, the server insisted on getting mushrooms which arrived about two mouthfuls before that diner finished. The final insult was that the two of us who had salmon were woken in the night with vomiting and diarrhoea. Avoid.
